Austin, Texas — Dec. 14
Lumesse, a provider of integrated talent management services, announced the latest version of its SaaS e-learning authoring platform, CourseBuilder 6.1.
The updated version features a new software architecture that Lumesse claims brings customers greater speed, availability and user experience through CourseBuilder’s cloud-based technology. This is the first product release of CourseBuilder authoring platform following Lumesse’s acquisition of Edvantage Group. The new version is available immediately to all customers.
CourseBuilder Version 6.1 includes enhancements to the application architecture and database handling capabilities. Testing has shown that people using certain key functions can expect faster response times, making it easier and faster to find, create, share and update e-learning content including tests, assessments, simulations and courses, the company said.
According to Lumesse CEO Matthew Parker, “CourseBuilder is unique in combining a rich and powerful content creation platform with the benefits of a SaaS delivery model, making it fast and simple for customers to begin creating and delivering high-quality content from a secure, 100 percent Web-based system.”
CourseBuilder 6.1 also adds new “archive” functionality that will enable users to create a full backup version of courses that includes not only the content, but also the complete development record of the course including all media elements, comments, tasks and revisions.
Archives may be stored either on the server or locally. This ability to create and store complete archived versions provides backup of project states and security for content.
Existing users receive the upgrade automatically as part of CourseBuilder’s software-as-a-service regular release schedule.
